Laviska Shenault Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • Shenault broke out at a young age. His tape showed a dynamic post-catch athlete who can fill several roles.
  • A Round 2 pick, Shenault should be used creatively by the Jags. There’s a chance he finishes #2 on the team in targets behind D.J. Chark.
  • A balanced offense and an unproven QB all but guarantee Shenault will prove highly volatile in 2020.


College background

2018 was a breakout year for Shenault.

He easily led Colorado in catches, receiving yards and receiving scores — adding 115 yards and 5 TDs on 17 rushing attempts. He set 12 different school records and was named team MVP and First-Team All-Pac 12. And he did it despite missing 3 games and parts of another with a foot injury.

Shenault’s 9.6 catches per game led the nation; his 112.3 receiving yards per game ranked 4th. He tallied double-digit grabs in 5 of 9 games and topped 100 yards 5 times, including a massive 211-yard outing in the season opener. In his 9 games, Shenault accounted for 42.4% of Colorado’s receptions, 46.2% of the receiving yards and 46.2% of the receiving TDs. Massive market shares.

Shenault played in the first 4 games of the season before missing the 5th with a core-muscle injury. He returned for the final 7 games but saw his production sink to 5.1 catches and 69.5 yards per game. Shenault reached 100 yards 3 times but fell short of 50 yards in 6 of his 11 outings.

Colorado’s passing game was only slightly worse in 2019 vs. 2018, dropping from 249.6 to 238.2 yards per game and from 1.6 to 1.5 TDs. Shenault’s market shares plummeted to 24.6% of the receptions, 30.3% of the receiving yards and 25.0% of the TDs. Those marks rank 16th, 12th and 18th among 23 of this year’s top WR prospects.
